Brilliant ideas for accent chairs

A great way to add interest to a space, accent chairs offer both style and function. They're a brilliant addition to any room in the home, from a small foyer space to seating areas. An accent chair is a focal point that should be set apart from most of your room’s design. Here's how...

A fresh burst of color in a room can instantly create dramatic interest so choose an accent chair in a vibrant color to inject mood and personality into your space.

Burst of color

A fresh burst of color in a room can instantly create dramatic interest so choose an accent chair in a vibrant color to inject mood and personality into your space. Bright colors such as sunny yellows and brilliant reds lend a positive and casual vibe, whereas deep hues such as emerald green and purple create a more formal atmosphere. Take note of your existing color scheme when you choose an accent chair and remember, a neutral color scheme goes well with virtually any accent color. You may also opt for an analogous or complementary color scheme. 

Material choices

Bring contrast to your space with your choice of accent chair material. A room full of heavy upholstered furniture may work well with an accent chair without any upholstery, perhaps an interesting wooden chair or a modern metal piece. Don’t feel restricted to choosing traditional materials.

Plastic chairs are also stylish in their own right. 

Textured upholstery

Upholstery is an easy way to incorporate pattern and texture in the home and in an accent chair, upholstery creates a subtle yet distinct design, injecting style but not overwhelming the entire space. Large patterns provide a bigger impact in a room, while small-scaled patterns are subtler - gistering more as texture than pattern. 

Conversation piece

Don’t be afraid to veer away from a traditional accent chair. A piece of driftwood chair or stool may work just as well and even become a great conversation piece. Designer chairs with distinct designs lso work in the same way. Try Kenneth Cobonpue’s modern Filipino creations or Philippe Starck’s ghost chair.
